Choral Training Scheme

Our newly-formed Choral Training Scheme gives a small group of young, local singers the chance to receive expert musical training and be part of a real, functioning choir here.

The experience is designed to be similar to that enjoyed by choristers: participants enjoy singing lessons with experienced baritone Andrew McIntosh and theory lessons with our Director of Music before coming together to rehearse as a full choir. Time is spend working on correct singing and breathing technique, music-reading, harmony singing and good rehearsal discipline. Participants then sing Mass at Christ Church once or twice a month, either by themselves or with the adult choir. Although expectations are high, sessions are fun, friendly and full of laughter.

Our Choral Training Scheme rehearses on Thursday evenings during term time. For more information or to discuss admission, please contact Jonathan Pease. No previous training is assumed: dedication and keenness to learn are far more important!
